UCSF Study: E-Cigarettes Do Not Help Smoking Cessation
Smokers who use electronic cigarettes are not significantly more likely than smokers who do not use the devices to quit using tobacco after one year, according to a study by UC-San Francisco researchers. After one year, about 10% of individuals who reported using e-cigarettes had successfully quit smoking, compared with 13% of smokers overall who were able to quit.
